Hi, here is the situation.

I shutdown WindowsXP with a folder/window open under My Computer. It was a small subdirectory I had been looking at to find a file. I shutdown the computer and when I boot up again, the window is there right where it was when I shutdown. Now here's the kicker. Now, even with that particular window closed and the desktop completely clear, I continue to get that same window opened upon windows start up. No matter what I do that same window always appears right where it was the first time I shutdown with it opened.

I'm clueless....but then that is another topic of discussion.

Please steer me in the right direction to fix this? Thank you in advance :)

I'm not sure if it would be there, but try checking the startup group in msconfig. That's my only guess, sorry dude.

go to start, programs, start up... sounds like the folder has been put in the start up... if its there just right click and delete...
